vacation rental description

Villa Groovy Gecko is a magnificent, large, very open, two story private waterfront beach house located directly on the Caribbean Sea in Placencia, Belize. Large infinity pool on beach, with outdoor covered area.

Home is built to enjoy the ocean front breezes and fresh air. Downstairs the large open air courtyard is complete with full outdoor kitchen and bar entertainment area.

Outstanding features radiate luxury and beauty throughout this exquisite 5 Bedroom, 5.5 Bath residence.

Construction of the home will be complete in April of 2014. We will begin taking reservations June 1, 2014. Rates will be significantly discounted during the 1st 3 months of bookings. The home will be meticulously maintained by full time onsite staff and very active owners.

Our level of quality and customer service can be verified by reading the reviews on our other two Gecko properties VRBO #'s 286157 and 376656. Home can sleep up to 24 when combined with listing 286157 located next door on the beach.

The main home is two stories consisting of over 3,500 sq ft of living area and covered patios directly over looking a private beach and the ocean.

Upstairs in the home you will find the master bedroom with a large master bath and outdoor shower and breathtaking views of the ocean. Upstairs also includes a second bedroom with a private bathroom, a large living room, dinning room, large well equipped open kitchen and a massive covered patio that goes across the entire back of the home overlooking the ocean.

The three remaining bedrooms are located on the first floor, each with its own private bath.

While the home is specifically designed to take advantage of the trade winds coming off the ocean the home is equipped with the latest high end solar assisted A/C systems that not only are the quietest available anywhere but also VERY energy efficient.

Cook dinner on either the large outside gas grill or the Green Egg charcoal grill and enjoy a local drink while relaxing under the fans on the large covered patios just steps from the ocean.

We are located just 1 mile south from the Placencia Hotel and 1 mile north of Maya Beach. The home is uniquely located in upscale area that provides for a very private beach setting, yet it is close to fine dining and other upscale resorts in an exclusive section of Placencia, just 10 minutes from Placencia Village and air strip.

Other features of the home include:

Privacy Fence with driveway gate.

Home is decorated with local art, fully furnished and outfitted with all brand new EVERYTHING.

Custom high end construction and finish out, all high end natural stone flooring throughout with no carpet in home.

Belize it or not....

Review submitted: August 26, 2014   Date of arrival: August 16, 2014

What a wonderful vacation for my family.
Let's start out with the bad, none of which involve this property...
1. it was a long day of travel getting to and from; based upon this, I would recommend the hopper flight to the house instead of the drive from Belize City;
2. sand fleas. We sprayed and all, but you still get bit. Take cortizone cream.
Now, LET'S GET TO THE GOOD....
1. DOMINGO!!!!! I cannot begin anywhere except here. What a joy! Get to know him. He's a wonderful young man, with a great family. We enjoyed all of our time with him, and my children nicknamed him "The Ninja Chef". When the owners decided to hire him they hit a grand slam!
2. The house! Wonderful. The open layout. The two kitchens. The downstairs bar overlooking the pool and sea. Everything. Even the beds and linens were the subject of great praise.
3. The cleaning staff. We had Brenda. She was as sweet as can be. We actually had to ask her to cut back her cleaning, believe it or not.
4. Places we liked to go: The Bistro was amazing for our dinner on our first night there. We went to The Ocean Club for Sunday Funday; also went there for a romantic beach dinner with my wife...ask for Dewayne, as he was great! And the Singing (?) Sands was also a wonderful dinner.
5. The ice maker downstairs at the bar is a great addition to the house.
6. We loved the front and back gates/doors; no need for keys!
7. Trips: we went to the "hidden" waterfall, tubing down the river, and snorkeling in the reef. These were all nice, but the waterfall was the best by far. Please note that if you drive yourself some of these trips involve serious off-roading.
8. Loved the fact that everyone spoke English, and that the US dollar was freely accepted (conversion was simple at 2:1).
9. Timing: because of when we went things were not at all crowded. Apparently there is a crowded time of the year, but we missed it. This was wonderful for us, as it allowed us to have a quiet, relaxing time without waiting anywhere for drinks or food. However, if you are looking for nightlife this would not be the time of year to go. Also, some places were closed because it was the slow season.
10. Last but not least, Ike. If you get to know him you'll know what I mean!

Spectacular Vacation Home!

Review submitted: August 14, 2014   Date of arrival: August 2, 2014

The open air downstairs courtyard with outdoor kitchen and bar overlooking the pool is unique and the best part of the house! Our group spent many hours enjoying the view from there. The rest of the house is just as amazing. The private bedroom suites are beautiful and the beds were very comfortable. The staff, Javier, Brenda, and Mabel, could not have been any more helpful and accommodating! Chef Domingo does a fantastic job. Definitely take advantage of this perk and have him cook for you. We really enjoyed spending time out on the Caribbean on the kayaks and paddle board. Definetly go into Placencia and check out the restaurants and shops; go to Silk Caye to swim with the stingrays, sharks, and turtles; and the waterfall is really cool. Already looking forward to returning next summer.
